"The Young May Moon"

words and music by Thomas Moore

  The young May moon is beaming, love,
The glow-worm's lamp is gleaming, love;
How sweet to rove
Through Morna's grove,
While the drowsy world is dreaming, love!
[Then awake! -- the heavens look bright, my dear,
'Tis never too late for delight, my dear;
And the best of all ways
To lengthen our days]
Is to steal a few hours from the night, my dear!

[Now all the world is sleeping, love,
But the Sage, his star-watch keeping, love,
And I, whose star
More glorious far
Is the eye from that casement peeping, love.
Then awake! -- till rise of sun, my dear,
The Sage's glass we'll shun, my dear,
Or in watching the flight
Of bodies of light
He might happen to take thee for one, my dear!]
